Lymington New Forest Hospital are looking for a consultant geriatrician to join our team in an exciting position which combines both inpatient, acute work with working at the forefront of community and urgent response services. We are a small acute hospital located in the beautiful New Forest. You will enhance the current consultant team to improve the care of older people living in the area.
You will be working with an already established community geriatric service and frailty support team to provide integrated care across the patient pathway in the New Forest; we anticipate this service expanding further over coming years to meet the growing needs of the population. We work closely with the Medicine for Older Persons department at University Hospital Southampton and there is the opportunity for joint working with this team, peer support and joining internal CPD. In addition, consultants at Lymington Hospital take part in the general medical on call, keep their own patients from the day of their admission, leading to excellent continuity of patient care throughout their stay. The hospital is innovative and collegiate in its management style and keen to develop the new models of care needed in modern health care.
